Through James 5:16-17, the Lord teaches us how to pray prayers that get results. Many people think prayer is a like a coin toss or a roll of the dice. “You never know what God will do”, I hear many people say. But that is not what Jesus taught or modeled. Its time we learn to pray Kingdom prayers and see Kingdom results.
If you don’t know what is yours in Christ, you won’t approach God with confidence and perseverance. You can only appropriate what you recognize. Discover who you are in Christ and what is available to you through Him; ditch wimpy prayers and pick up your weapons.
You can only appropriate what you recognize. If we don’t know something is ours we cannot utilize it. Too often we let fear and discouragement, shame and insecurity push us around, because we do not know who we are.
We need to know who we are in Christ and what has been given to us. That is what Paul prays for in Ephesians chapter one and that is what the Holy Spirit is showing us in this message.
Beloved, don’t let the devil bully you any longer! Rise up and fight. Find out how in this message.
God is on the move in St. Louis! We see the wave of the Spirit’s move and we are riding it. As we start a new focus, a study in the book of Acts about the “power of fellowship”, we are positioning our selves for God to move in our lives, our church, and our city.
Hear how you can catch the wave and see God move in your life.
Want Jesus’ results? Then pray like Jesus prayed. Jesus’ disciples saw the power and grace on Jesus and His ministry and heard the way He prayed. They saw the connection and, recorded in Luke 11:1-2, they asked Jesus, “Teach us to pray.”
In this series, Jesus is teaching us to pray like He prays. If we change our prayer life, it will change our life. If we pray like Jesus, we will experience Jesus’ results in our lives. Let Jesus revolutionize your prayer life.
In this first message, we will see how important it is to open our mouths, refusing to let the enemy silence us, and pray God’s will with expectation that God will do exactly what He promised to do.
